Humble Bundle's latest pay-what-you-want gang of games is the Humble Firaxis Bundle. Firaxis goes large on strategy games and is the publishing home for Sid Meier's canon of titles as well as the XCOM action strategy games. So you won't be surprised that the latest Humble Bundle features a plethora of titles with Civilisation in the name, XCOM in the name and various other gems. According to Humble Bundle, this gaggle of games would normally cost you $211.
Breaking down the various bundle payment tiers, we have the following:
- Paying just $1 or more nets you XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Sid Meier’s Pirates!, Ace Patrol Bundle, and Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete.
- Beating the average price will expand your bundle to include Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, Sid Meier's Civilization V, Sid Meier's Starships, XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Soldier Pack, XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Slingshot Pack, XCOM: Enemy Within, and 10 per cent off one month of Humble Monthly.
- The top tier of $15 (or more) adds the recent Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth, Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Exoplanets Map Pack, and a coupon for 33 per cent off Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide DLC in the Humble Store.
If you are a Mac or Linux gamer you will be happy to know that "most titles in this bundle are also available on Steam for Mac and Linux". You can check which titles are compatible with which platform here.
At the time of writing the beat-the-average price is pretty high, compared to usual, at $9.43. Please remember that those who do beat the average price will be getting more, as yet unannounced, titles added to their bundle and that you can allocate a portion of your purchase outlay to charity. This time around the Humble Bundle is supporting Action Against Hunger USA.
